DUST HUSTLE 8: QLD Moto Park

“The Riders’ Event”

WHAT’S THE DEAL?

The wildest event on the Dust Hustle™ calendar, Dust Hustle 8: QLD Moto Park is “The Riders’ Event” for 2019. 3 tracks will be spread across the epic QMP venue, 2 of which will be new to QMP specifically for the DH8 event. Test your enthusiasm for the inappropriate and we’ll wrap it all up with camping and a trackside afterparty Saturday night.

TELL ME MORE

DH8 is a big-old bring-anything moto campout with just the right amount of good food and great drinks. Save the ‘big show’ and trade alley for DH9, we’re getting back to basics and combining the best the Dust Hustle™ has to offer.

Don’t be fooled though, this isn’t some backyard bush bash! The tracks are Motorcycling Australia certified for professional level racing. We’ll just be grooming them a little smoother than your usual motocross track and sprinkling on a ton of extra fun.

WHO’S GETTING INVOLVED?

We’re going to round up 200 of the most legendary muppets to join us for this scramble shamble. It will be groomed dirt and grass surfaces, so even the most inexperienced riders will feel comfortable mixing it up.

DH8-track01
1. “THE HOLLYWOOD HILLBILLY” NATURAL TERRAIN MX TRACK

This one’s your big boy! The ‘Hollywood’ makes use of the popular Natural Terrain motocross track at QMP but with the jumps rounded off so no one is crushed by a Harley. Elevation changes, ripe loam soil and big berms make this one radical track you won’t want to get off!

DH8-track02
2. “THE DECISION FAKER” INAPPROPRIATE ENDURO

The surprise packet of 2018, a small but stupidly fun track! Choose your own adventure where the tracks splits; stick to the bottom section and try out the mini table tops or challenge yourself and head up the enduro hill. Took the wrong turn? Just fake it till you make it and watch out for merging traffic!

DH8-track03
3. “THE MOTO MOWERS” FLAT GRASS TRACK

NEW for 2019, we’ve laid out an epic grass track with corners for flopping and a big straight for chopping! Reducing radius bends and 180 degree hairpins will give out a few grass stains as we clipper this course faster than Jim’s mower on race juice.

THE CLASSES: DH8

1. SMALL BIKE BURNERS

Previously the Clutchless Scooter & Postie class, this growing group is now open to any clutchless bikes PLUS other small bikes with clutches under 150cc. Get the Grom’s out and tear the tarp off the old farm bike because the small bore battle just got interesting! No 2-stroke race bikes, they can get f’ed to the Enduro & MX class.

2. RISKY ROAD BIKES

A road bike that is road legal (or close to), your daily ride, a weekend tarmac warrior or highway cruiser. You never know where the skills you pick up here will help you. Plus its inappropriate, so possibly the most fun and impressive category!

3. OLD MATES (PRE ’90)

Roll out the vintage and classic steeds; this pre 1990 only class is open to anything old and awesome. An eclectic mix of desert sleds and pan heads can opt to take part in this jalopy jive category. We hope there will be a number of $500 gumtree specials mixing it up in this category too!

4. ENDURO & MX

A class for those who regularly like to get their ‘plumbs in the crumbs’. We’ll expect some interesting outfits in this group, just for some extra ‘spice’ on these mainstream machines. Non-registered bikes are accepted, with no limit on engine size. Open to any Enduro or MX bikes, old and new.

DUST HUSTLE 9: North Brisbane

“The Big Dance”

WHAT’S THE DEAL?

Everyones favourite event is now better than ever. A field of 140+ riders will pilot the most weird, wonderful and woefully unsuitable motorcycles on the professional dirt track in the best damn display of dirt and dust tomfoolery.

TELL ME MORE

You can expect everything that is great about the big show that is Dust Hustle™. Superbly stupid on track antics, the Food Truck Roundup with 8+ gourmet trucks, Trade Show alley stacked with stalls and a trackside bar to keep the spectators well lubed.

WHO’S GETTING INVOLVED?

Just over 140 lucky riders will sneak a spot for this event while thousands of spectators (literally thousands, we counted last year) will turn out to see some of the best value motorcycle entertainment. Never ridden on a pro track? Perfect, you’ll fit right in with this crowd!
